No worries Red Panda. Shame you can't join this one, but we'll have a new tourney kicking off at the start of November! Don't ask me what type of tourney because I haven't decided yet :P

I'll add you too, Tricoloryoshi. Welcome!

I'll add a quick comment about the skill level gap: I have absolutely no idea what kind of mix to expect from the NL community - obviously we're not a dedicated Pokéforum so I don't know whether to expect a majority of trainers practicing IV/EV training with competitive strategy, or more 'casual' teams. Obviously EV trainers will trounce casual trainers, which I recognize will be a turn-off to casual players competing if they know categorically that they're going to lose the first round every time. Again, I'm going to play this by ear to learn what to expect, and try to find ways to balance the field for all players (as far as reasonably possible) in future tournaments.
As ever, there's likely to be elasticity and a lack of balance in the first few tourneys. Assuming this thread survives beyond that though, a comfortable (and fun!) middle ground should be achievable.

In this case IV/EV doesn't really make a difference, since the max level is 5 the Iv and EV there will be less of a difference. IMO this tourney tests your tactical skills rather than your strength.

Looks like I have to make a last minute resignation. Lotta stuff going on. Apologies, hope to join the next one.

I've got the body of a taut, pre-teen Swedish boy.

Just to reiterate anyone who feels in a sudden rush: If your team is nearly there but just not quite, still let me know and I'll still add you in. The deadline can be fairly flexible, I just wanted to filter out the people who'd say they're going to join and then don't. But the midnight deadline (that's in 4 hours) stands - if I don't at least know about you by then, you're not going to be in this tourney.

At midnight I'll put together the tourney list and randomly select match-ups.

Shame you can't make this one @Radixss, I'll remove your name. And will add moomoo and DonJumpMad too.

Well, for the little cup, you can't really EV train, and IVs won't make much of a difference at this point. :P
I'm personally just using some of the weaker pokemon in the little cup because I don't have have any better ones. :P

You don't have enough time turtle, you'll never make it!

For you, the day LordJumpMad graced your threads, was the most important day of your life. But for me, it was Tuesday.

Deadline reached! Not accepting any new players now. Here's the tourney arrangement:

Since 8 players is a suitable number for a standard tree tourney, that's how we'll play this one. I've created pairings using a random generator, which are as follows:

Set 1:
Charizord vs hoennishome
Shining-Void vs DonJumpMad
Set 2:
turtlelink vs Tricoloryoshi
Void vs moomoo

The two winners in each set will face each other, and then the overall winner per set will face each other to determine the victor! It's a little tourney but then... it's Little Cup! That's all from me, feel free to arrange and commence battle. I'm going to bed :P
